Drabble: Planning Ahead – Sequel to ‘Unexpected Sight’

Title: Planning Ahead – Sequel to ‘Unexpected Sight’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 357: Dinosaur at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: They haven’t even caught it yet, but Ianto already has an idea for how to cover-up of the dinosaur incident.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

The whole team stared at the… Creature wasn’t the right word; the dinosaur was basically just a bunch of wired-together fossilised bones that had somehow come to life and decided to take a stroll through Cardiff.

Times like this, it was easy to tell the Cardiff natives from the holidaymakers. The people who were accustomed to living in the city on the Rift were running for their lives; the visitors were snapping photos.

Ianto was rather glad there was a new Jurassic Park movie coming to the local cinemas. With luck he could pass this off as a publicity stunt.

Yep, the locals know enough to start running when things get weird. They wouldn't have survived this long if they didn't.
My thinking exactly! They have a finely honed sense of self preservation, it's survival of the fittest. The visitors have no idea they should be scared.

Thank you!

Ha ha, I'm surprised the locals weren't just like "ugh, at least it's only a walking dinosaur skeleton this time..." and go back to drinking their lattes!

The locals have a strong sense of self preservation - the dinosaur skeleton was snapping at everyone, they weren't about to take the chance it might be able to eat them!

Thank you!
Now thats a really good idea *grins*

great drabbl.
Thank you! Ianto's really on the ball!
I think "Night at the Museum" would be closer to reality.
Perhaps, but the Jurassic Park movie was recent, so i used that.

Thank you!
in fact, in Night at the Museum, there is a T-Rex skeleton who wanders the streets !!!
the first was in 2006 and the third in 2014

I didn't know that! I haven't seen any of the movies. It would have worked well.
frankly, they are friendly. this is a good and joyful entertainment. There is no death unlike Jurassic
The first for the new is taking.
the second is not bad.
I have not yet seen the third.
Maybe I'll watch the first one next time it's on TV.
